Je sais pourquoi

j'ai reçu un SMS, je ne comprend toujours pas pourquoi ...

Mon frangin crée aussi des sites web dans le cadre de sa société:

Pour une demande de devis il suffit de prendre contact

Et j'ai un SMS, un mois après un SMS laconique - j'ai plein de nouvelles - tout content je m'empresse de tléphoner. Dix minutes d'une charmante conversation et pouf me voila replongé dans des doutes. Mais Content quand même. Mesdames vous êtes compliquées.

Tour du monde

Il me semble que c'est ce que Xav est en train de faire.

Innocent

couverturede Harlan Coben, une classique histoire - chez Coben - du passé qui pète à la figure des personnages de ce livre. J'ai bien aimé le style du premier et du dernier chapitre - genre livre dont vous êtes le héros. Ca met tout de suite dans l'ambiance et cela donne une touche beaucoup plus personnelle à la fin. L'histoire est moins alambiqué que les précédent roman et certain point restent incohérent. Le style et la traduction sont tels que de toute façon on ne s'en rend pas compte. Coben introduit dans ce livre deux nouveaux personnage - l'un policier, l'autre inspecteur pour le compte du procureur du comté de New Wark.

ça faisait un petit moment que ça ne m'étais pas arrivé - un lapin :-)

and I think it's bad for the Mac ecosystem - but since apple, is not Apple computers anymore, it might not be an issue with them anymore. So why do I think Apple is bad with numbers ? Well it's because it's very difficult for ISV to figure out, how the apple ecosystem is, and those figures and numbers are important for the product management process. So what numbers should apple give to at least it's developers :


  • Intel-PowerPC ratio

  • OS repartition, from update dowloads

  • OS support roadmap with clear end-of-support dates


Both of those last numbers are almost always available from vendors be they microsoft, be they Linux vendors. But Apple does not give any numbers. And I don't even want real numbers I would be satisfied with a pie chart saying 10% of Apple users still run Mac OS X 10.1.5. The same goes for the Intel/PPC ratio.
The support roadmap is just a matter of publishing internal decision - But I really believe this would help product management discussion like this one.
As for the numbers that can be gathered for instance on the AdiumX users base, I believe these are biased. I believe normal end ussers use iChat and not Adium - so to me Adium's numbers represent some of the geek space in Apple's users but not the majority who uses the tools provided by Apple. Apple please do something to make your ISV's life easier - it benefits the mac ecosystem - meaning you are the main benefactor of it.

This week my company released a new version of our client. We fixed a few crashers and added a nice feature named Joost links, which will let you share easily what you are watching with friend. Let me share with you what I like to see on the platform :

The first one is the first program I was able to see from begining to end back in September 2006. The second one was one of the largest channel we had - and I could let the client play it while I went home for sleep.
For these links to work from the web you need joost to be installed on your computer - I still provide invites, if you need one.
If you are in Joost, you can also share these joost links from within the Instant Messaging system - to access it press the ">" key, Click on the left hand side corner widget menu button and choose Instant Messaging. If you already have a jabber account you can use it - if Not you might want to create one using a regular Jabber client, or you can use you google account to chat via google talk.

Voila maintenant deux mois que je me suis lancé dans la quête d'un appartement. Hier après une douzaine de visites - j'ai fait une offre sur une logement de 90m2 qui était sur le marché depuis un peut plus d'un an. Malheureusement celui-ci venait d'être vendu. Pour une fois la personne qui me sert de conseil a été à la hauteur et a pris les chose en main - il me propose 3 autres appartements du même type et charge sa sœur de me les faire visiter (3 semaines de vacances vont aussi lui permettre de ne pas s'en occuper.)

Which links to http://pspcolls.co.uk/Firefox.htm , Where there is a simple page on which you have two download links : http://firfox.bravehost.com/ which is suspended. I wonder what was there.

Where is the money in this scheme ?

couverture Ces derniers temps j'ai été du genre assez flemmard et lorsque je ne travaillais pas j'ai regardé pas mal de DVD. Je ne suis pas un très grand fan des séries télé venue d'outre-atlantique. J'ai donc regardé avec scepticisme cette série. Je trouve que la trame est simplissime (on reviendra sur les trames lorsque je parlerais de 24) - mais elle dégage une certaine fraicheur. L'histoire de quatre couples qui vivent dans la même rue et qui intéragissent. Je n'aime pas le fait que seul un des couples semble travailler - les autres passent leurs journées à colporter bruits et rumeurs. Je n'aime pas et c'est mon fort côté anti-clérical, les constantes références à Dieu pour justifier tout un tas de sornette. En dehors de ça c'est agréable à regarder.

Voila j'ai 35 ans aujourd'hui - la journée avait plutôt mal commencé avec un vol Strasbourg-Schipohl retardé de 30 minutes. Mais elle a bien finie c'est l'essentiel.

say tu es beau

Today and yesterday I attended europe 2007, in Amsterdam. Previous conferences of such type I attended included : Be's European developers conference, Geektea's at beeurope's headquaters and a few FOSDEM (2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007). I wanted to go to Apachecon for two reasons, the first and foremost is the fact that many of my collegues are apache members, or affiliated with some kind of Apache project. Coming from the client side of things (Camino, mozilla), I wanted to see how things where organized on the other end of the web software land. I've never been to mozilla held conferences so I can't really compare. The entrance price tag to the Amsterdam conference was an issue for me - 500 € per day is a bit excessive from my used perspectives of Free conferences.

The first day I arrived early, which was good because it gave me the opportunity to get my T-shirt, and then connect to the Wifi network and start reading my emails and finish releasing our beta for friends release. I then attended a few tracks :
Lucene
Explained what it is, gave a few examples on how to use it and who uses it (technorati wikipedia).
Presentation is available here.
Lucene Advanced
Gave a few hints on getting better results and performance out of Lucene's indexes. And out to configure it. Specifically to have a look into contrib/benchmark. Better indexes can be built with the stopword option : it removes a word from having weight in the index process so if all the document you index talk about say HTML - it might be a good idea to use the stopword onHTML.
Semantic web without calling it semantic
A Nice presentation about what actually RDF is, what it should be used for, and some of the tools, available to manipulate (things like ANT. Then I followed a presentation on ivy which is a dependency manager that work pretty well with ANT. Key thing to remember from this is that ANT+ivy should be compared to Maven 2, and not maven against ivy alone.
Then back to do or try to do some work - now that we are live we still need to test a few things.
Then Came the presentation on - which is used at Yahoo!, but not on production systems.
I have issues with the fact that hdfs master nodes do not do any kind of fail over - so if you are not careful and that node crashes, you've lost your file system. The presentation was oriented more torwards the map/reduce computations than on the hdfs - which I would have interest in.
But the Question and Answer part of that talk was very very interesting.
The last thing I assisted was a presentation of Apache Directory Server, which is a "new" OpenLDAP implementation. This brings competition to current LDAP implementation and that is always a good thing. The presentation was done by the project leader so it was fresh and up to date.

Lightning talks is a thing not to miss. And I had the pleasure to see a living legend : Wilfredo Sanchez.

Joost invites

| 89 Comments

So we are live. Still having a few issue that we are fixing - so I have some invites if you want to get invited you need to live a comment with :


  • First name
  • Last Name
  • Email Adress
  • Country you are from.

Also I would love people I invite ( It takes me between 2 and 3 minutes per person), to take the same amount of time to give feedback on Joost on Joost's forums.

Update I have new requirements and a new page to request invites.
